Dahlia to vet in 1 1/4 hours so I got time to basically runf or my life and warm up for the Cat Rodeo. She seems to be okay, but I'm only 90% on that, so... Just a gut call, best to have a vet confirm it's all kosher.
Meanwhile, for thsoe who don't visit my journal, my dad's family poked into my life and was weird and creepy as usual, and it freaked me out. Basically, a handwritten note saying, "BTW, your dad's brother died, we're doing great, hope you're well!" and then a handwritten slip of paper asking us to help defray funeral expenses for aforesaid dead guy, whose last appearance in my life was t my MOM's mother's funeral to ask if my mom's mother left us any money they could have. UH... this is my dead dad's family's first reappearance in my life since then, soooo... and they're saking money.... and I *know* what a miserly SOB and well-insured SOB the late uncle was... even if I felt ad he died... he at least was nice enough to never say my dad deserved pancreatic cancer, which is what another of that clan did...
So, yeah, it's a Hillbilly Soap Opera of pain and hurt and bad memories and my therapy is, predictably:
I know, right?
BTW, if you can't keep track of all the family drama? LOL, I was raise din it, or I'd be totally clueless too. I once made a chart to explain it to someone and they needed 2 more charts and a timeline. Dad was one of 11, one of 7 to survive to adulthood. There's a lot to keep track of just in him and his siblings. (We thought it was only 9 kids, for one thing, but a few years ago, turns out it was 11...)
Much HUG = Humor Understanding and Gentleness to your day! :-)
Good morning! I am striving to be upbeat and optimistic today, and keep up some sense of strength. Hubby's uncle is past the poitn where he can even cope with a phone call, let alone visits, and all this in the last 2 weeks. By the time Hubby got the okay to take time off work for us to trek from Virginia to Wisconsin (where afreosaid uncle lives)? We were told it's ... Well, the blunt way to put...
